Apple Will No Longer Be Supporting QuickTime

The really bad news is that it’s got significant security vulnerabilities, which won’t be fixed. Users are advised to uninstall the program.

The iGiant is also quietly advising users to uninstall the media player from their Windows machines to avoid being hacked. Word of the end of support comes from infosec biz Trend Micro. It discovered two critical flaws in the Windows build of QuickTime and reported them to Apple. In response, Trend told The Register, the iPhone maker said it won't fix the bugs, and is cutting the application loose. Both of the vulnerabilities آ– ZDI-16-241 and ZDI-16-242 آ– are heap-corruption-based remote code execution vulnerabilities.
